Gillingham midfielder Bradley Dack will miss the rest of the season through suspension.
Dack was sent-off in the 3-2 defeat at MK Dons on April 1 but returned against Charlton on Easter Monday.
However, the Gills revealed on Friday that Dack had been given an additional two-game ban for his red card against MK Dons, following the referee's report.
The club appealed that decision but they lost that appeal this week and Dack will miss the season finale.
He is ruled out of this Saturday's home game with Fleetwood and the trip to former manager Justin Edinburgh's Northampton on the final day of the campaign.
The Gills midfielder was red carded at MK Dons after dissent to the referee led to his second caution of the game.
Dack was incensed by the decision to award a free-kick against him and from that, MK Dons scored the winner.
It was his second red card of the season and head coach Ady Pennock revealed he was fined two weeks’ wages.
Speaking earlier this month Pennock said: “It’s happened and we have to move on. It will give someone else the opportunity to come in and do well, they have to.
“It is just a shame it happened because since I have been here, Dacky has been excellent. We just didn’t need it.”
Gills still need at least one more win to secure their spot in League 1 next season as they sit just four points above the relegation zone.
